  1. Past hour
  2. I played two libs and a pickle in CC and it was a blast... I can only imagine the cheeky shiz you could pull with two pickles, home one, defiance, and ackbar seems like a decent place to start
  3. Funny enough are all those "sources" are games. RPGs
  4. I know the explanation of how it's supposed to carry them all. I just don't see it happening, though. Look at the Falcon docked with the spar of a Nebulon-B in ESB. Then, do some quick spatial calculations in your head and it becomes quickly apparent that they're not all going to fit. Even a combination of inside/outside isn't feasible. The ship is just too narrow.
  5. Have you come across a Greyhaven Channeler build that you've been impressed with? 2x2 Spearmen seems the natural fit, but... I'm not sure what to do with the unit. 3x2 and 3x3 probably want more combat-focused champions, and I do not know where that leaves the 2x2.
  6. It was an X-Wing / TIE Fighter thing. The Nebulons in those games had honking hangars that could fit stuff. Somehow.
  7. This is cannon (pardon the pun) and should be done 😉 Yes.... Still, a Lambda with Engine, Rebel Captive and a defensive Sensor slot card still hits pretty hard against squads of her day 😊
  8. Double Pickle can be hilariously tanky... I got a seocnd MC80H as a gift after I'd already purchased my first on my own way back and I've personally never regretted it. Ocasionally, I've brought out the double Slaved Turrets or the double Redundant Shields...
  9. Pah! I am on my third(!) attempt trying to just pry a model apart. The previous two models had to be glued back together due to breakage Am I just unlucky to have gotten the batches where the glue gun went into overdrive?? Thanks for the effort you've put in to share your experiences.
  10. Cluster Bombs!
  11. She was shot down afterwards. By LOTS of TIEs.
  12. Just to clarify: I have a great deal of respect and gratitude for FFG providing us with awesome plastic spaceships for an awesome, immersive game that we are lucky to have. But wave 7 isn't the heart of the problem; the thread title is a bit broader than that. Maybe they are doing everything they can with that one release. But one has to look at the track record, too. Do you really expect them to release a new article when they don't happen to have a new product coming out? I don't think they've ever done that before. Not once. It's not about blaming individuals or trying to make some PR guy cry. It doesn't have to be immediate. This is about a lack of content in general. Voicing discontent on as large a scale as we can is one of the best ways to make a company understand there is a problem. And if it takes them a full year to try to loosen up their policy, well, all the more reason to get started now.
  13. Oh wow - I love blood diviner ... the ability to have some sway over the morale deck is fantastic. I love the thematic refresh ability it has too...
  14. Minor spelling error: BR-219 Heavy Blaster pistol says "GM may spend [THREAT][THREAT] to damage weapon one step., GM may spend [DESPAIR] to cause weapon to meltdown and expload, destroying weapon and causing base damage to wielder." Fullstop followed by comma, plus I didn't know 'expload' was a thing.
  15. MC80 Home One is $20 on Amazon. Convince me that I need a second.
  16. Are you really trying to compare actual miniature game quality figures to heroclix? I think you are going to have a bad time in this hobby. Here is the thing about niche markets. They can provide very high profit margins especially with a unique and popular ip like star wars. This is not a prepainted game and it is not likely that it will ever become that. With that in mind, make your decision about where to spend your money. The rest of us will enjoy our hobby that includes assembly and painting.
  17. Nebulon-Bs allegedly carried fighters docked on pylons (like the Gozanti) mounted on the spindly mid section. 24 of them though... They've gotta be close packed nonetheless.
  18. You already know why; they scrapped everything that made the RCRB version any good and went back to everything I hated about D&D.
  19. But like I said. Damage is done. I'll go now, from this thread. For good.
  20. Yeah it's all the alt art available (except last years dual-sided cards in the Hangar Bay) for just playing games, plus the Damage deck and the target lock token. BUT, I will say with some venues charging extra (which is still weird to me) for the Hangar Bays, it would irk me more if I was at one of those. Based on previous years in the UK, all the games were included in 1 ticket.
  21. For reference: "Asteroid: The ship must skip its "Perform Action" step this round. After skipping the "Perform Action" step, it rolls one attack die. On a Hit result, the ship suffers one damage; on a Crit result, it suffers one critical damage. While a ship is overlapping an asteroid, it cannot perform any attacks." A ship can still perform free actions even if it moved through or overlapped an obstacle, as long as the ship is not stressed. // With Flight Assist Astromech, the cards specifically says that you only get the action if you didn't overlap an obstacle. Snap's own ability doesn't have that stipulation, however. Asteroids prevent you from taking your normal action, but Asteroids don't prevent you from performing free actions, if you're given them from some source. A ship with Coordinate could allow a TIE Fighter on an Asteroid to Barrel Roll off it, for example. In the case of Snap, if he moved fast enough, and isn't touching another ship, he can attempt to perform a Boost. So long as the template and final position of ship after the boost don't overlap another ship or obstacle, and so long as Snap isn't stressed (or have too much stress for Primed Thrusters), he'd be able to perform a boost. Boosting off a rock with Snap wouldn't allow Flight Assist Astromech to perform a barrel roll, regardless of arc, since FAA specifically says "if you did not overlap."
  22. No, the astromechs. I envision them as weird background extras, like the cantina patrons or the alien masses on the streets of Tatooine and Coruscant. They give depth and texture to locations but aren't the focus unless a PC engages with them.
  23. Actually, I was thinking of the Sentinel having Ion's standard. Lambdas are just covered in lasers, official stock numbers is two (2) forward-facing double lasers, and then two (2) forward facing wing-mounted double lasers cannons for another four lasers. And yes also fickle is right they have a single rear facing laser. But yeah, even if you pulled out the wingtips or body lasers for the cannon slot, then there are still straight up two double cannons left in the other mounting.
  24. IIRC there was only 1 defender against the X-wings, and the TIE fighters did not make much of a noise in that fight. So... no?
  25. (That's 10 dmg, unless we add the first success, pierce 5, I'll use the advantage to have smeared it enough that if you for your blaster it'll ignite the gel?)
  26. Deleted as I found my own answer.
